The Rainborowes: One Family's Quest to Build a New England

The Rainborowes: One Family's Quest to Build a New England - Adrian Tinniswood An excellent family history set during a turbulent time in both England's and the Colonies' history.Tinniswood does a magnificent job of tying the family to the events around them and shows how truly connected both "Englands" were. Most histories seem to tow the line towards either geographical area being separate from each others political influence. The Rainborrowes removes such nonsense and shows how inextricably linked they were. A lovely overview of one family's influence on both "Englands" and how much of history is written or re-written by the victors.
